8:02 am
city following two days of fears street bottles at least two people have been reportedly killed and thousands injured back after a riot police moved in to despise the rally with tear gas water cannons and electric showbox weapons what was initially a peaceful city in was snowballed into a nationwide protest involving almost fifty. isn't a stumble for. my hotel faces the tax from square and around two thirty am because of the extreme noise and the smell of something burning coming in from the street and it was really a sight to behold in the middle of the darkest night you saw those red flashes of fires burning in the middle of the square now the protesters have been burning a lot of things around this the square starting from kiosks and vendors booths and ending mostly with vehicles now among those vehicles were police the police trucks that i have personally seen but also they seem to have been targeting. these
8:03 am
satellite. trucks the media companies a lot of people are incredibly distrustful of the media especially of the state controlled media to go back a little bit the police did withdraw from texas and square in the early afternoon on saturday and that is legit hands of thousands of people started pouring into the square despite the fact that it was essentially permeated with tear gas and pepper spray and there's still puddles of water everywhere from water cannons being used. to the square and one point it did seem like i was not in istanbul but rather in talk in egypt you have to understand that a protest began because the government plans to get rid of a car in the middle of the city it was a peaceful sit in until the police started to break it up using tear gas and essentially excessive force and that is. people have gathered over there in multitudes and they weren't at that point protesting not the plans to demolish the
8:04 am
park but rather they were saying they wanted to save the country from aragon and his policies most of the people that i've spoken to said they you can see there is three things that they're unhappy about it's early guns policies and towards syria it's the increasing islamisation off the country and basically a crackdown on old freedoms particularly in areas concerning media and journalists turkey remains the number one country when it comes to the number of journalists jailed when it comes to international reaction we should mention the report by amnesty international which offers happens to be really close to taksim square and they have said and i'm quoting that this was disgraceful use of excessive force demonstrated by police in istanbul having said that the police did seem to be targeting individual protesters there have there are some reports that some people may have lost their sight because of the tear gas being fired at close range there's also reports of police targeting individual shops and stores and cafes which were trying to help out the protesters on the square and the police were seen
8:05 am
to be throwing the tear gas canisters inside but there were also reports that medical very medical association has tried to set up sort of camps within a so they could help those who were injured in the protests but they couldn't do so because of the tear gas permeating the streets i could smell the tear gas coming into my hotel two kilometers away the streets were blocked off i had to walk around in that area it was really difficult to breathe in fact the first thing that a lot of tourists were handed out when they came to istanbul were little maps to cover their faces and really i saw a lot of people with their i did see like their eyes were burning and they were suffering from the effects of tear gas so we can talk about the excessive use of force and still waiting for any reaction from calls by amnesty international to stop the police brutality. and dr john arrington tech i disobeyed the internet based a news organization a stumble guess that is joining us now live full nor on this dr thank you very much indeed for sharing your sunday with as great to have to see you so the protests is
8:06 am
back again and from your point of view how strong is the movement and who are those taking part that. well in my opinion this protest which europe has been dangerously like you mentioned is part. of the ongoing culture wars here in turkey previously in his culture wars were waged by purely symbolic means on the written page but means of remembrance of certain events and certain dates and now these culture wars have erupted into the streets as for us from the movement this. is quite strong but compared to the people supporting to do it and you're courting and it is quite a small business to stand who do you blame for the violence the processes or the riot police. well from my point of view i can only say that the police in this case used excessive force and such i myself will go i was
8:07 am
a thing the market couple of years ago when in the wider talks in the area and on that day there was a right happening in the sorry state of your work in the market and i was just doing his job in an area appropriate to the kurds so at that time the police decided to. spray marking the area even though there was nothing happening there in other words what's happened here over both two days. and i think it's fair to the use of excessive force when the police and the percentage of them we have calls this yeah and from your point of view would it be enough for the government to bond down from the papuan to quell the anger that. well. as far as i can see i think. for one thing out of the one i mean the borough prime minister has already come out publicly on sunday speaking to the. council of turkish exporters saying that it will not back down from its plan to rebuild the
8:08 am
doctor barracks they still have to bury its are also part of one of the earlier referred to as the culture wars and so i do not think that the government is prepared to back to back down from this plan at all however in view of the fact that his international image is very important given thirty's important export figures and the way in which the current government is encouraging trade and commerce as a result might seem feasible for the government to give some kind of leeway on the on the part of the servicemen a matter of fargo and i don't mean you know. to dr john arrington tech i did so but internet based a news organization is stumble that dr arrington thank you very much indeed for your time thank you you're welcome take as prime minister at a one admitted police may have used excessive force but called on protesters to

frankfurt this week took a turn for the was when hundreds of riot get clad officers tore into the march in protest as spraying tear gas police then drove the marches into a tight and ties to area a suppression toxic known as camp playing the zone of all is that aussie in the midst of it all. a planned march that was supposed to go right through the middle of all germany's financial capital only lasted five hundred meters people police into the splits in a demonstration into several different parts now the police have told us that this is because they asked people to remove mosques who were marching in the green put on see a separate scene on sci fi shows campaign is they refused to do that then paint was throwing police responded with with pepper spray now this then ended up with a i was long standoff in the sense that all the front. with so many people. in the clashes that broke out sporadically between the police and protesters.

there. we were standing there suddenly police moved in and they beat some of us and i was pepper street there was no reason for that i managed to get out. from work oh this is your policy not ours now away from me paying throwing in the pepper spraying the idea behind glow keepon i was supposed to show the political leaders of europe that they not happy that they want change and they said that they had a clear message to those leaders in the european union this is book the fight front

8:14 am
first global views channel to reach the you tube with. details have emerged this week of the killing of a church and a u.s. immigrant by an f.b.i. agent ibrahim was shot dead during questioning over his alleged link to one of the boston marathon bombing suspects and there have been reports suggesting he was unarmed at the time that contradicts the f.b.i. as a leg claims that he had target agents with a knife or a metal rod to dashrath father says it's hard to believe he was killed in self-defense. from the photographs that were sent to me it's evident he was shot six times to the body and wants to the head at the back of the head it looks like a finishing shot of an assassination to me it looks as if they came to his house like bandits and shot him in cold blood from the photos his house looked like it had been robbed he was questioned for eight hours without witnesses or
8:15 am
a lawyer no one can tell for sure what happened there until there is an official investigation the agents say my son attacked them but there were several armed and well trained men even if he lost his temper and became violent they could have restrained him or wound him shoot him in the leg or the arm or the shoulder but what happened was murder complete with a finishing shot maybe my son knew something the police didn't want to come out and they killed him to keep him silent. and investigative journalist and veteran police officer microcode believes the dash of scaling leaves a lot of them to interpretation. there are two glaring problems with what we have has as an already contradictory account from law enforcement about how the events went down the first of which is the man was unarmed and i will hearken back to my days on the streets in one nine hundred seventy six in los angeles where
8:16 am
. olympic medalist juan carlos got combative with a bunch of police officers not not one of us drew our guns and we were getting thrown around like rag dolls and we were all trained and we were all very very fit at the time so there's a there's an escalation of force scale which was obviously or apparently not followed in this case but my second huge problem with the law enforcement stories he was supposed to be signing a confession to a triple murder i don't care even if if you are the f.b.i. which doesn't have a good reputation you're us somebody is going to sign a confession for triple murder you have a minute jail house and a secure setting and the police officer officers law enforcement personnel around him are not armed because he's in a secure setting this was at best for the f.b.i. . horribly mishandled but it sounds to me very much like they went there with the intent to provoke him and stay just shooting standard police procedure everywhere

8:19 am
they would kill an aussie welcome bon upon islam. jihan has been cold against syria with a prominent islamic cleric branding the assad government quote more infidel than jews and christians the call to arms was made by shaikh use of. whose rhetoric reaches millions in the arab world through the al jazeera news network which has made the shake. meanwhile c.n.n. rebel groups have refused to attend an upcoming peace conference in geneva they cited don't go in fighting in the sea or in provinces of hoosac where government and lebanese hezbollah troops have mounted an enormous offensive one but analysts say could change the course of the civil war that my colleague rory solution to this kind of the past week with the company has been closely following events in the country. the leaders of the syrian opposition had in fact announced they will not be participating in the u.s. and russian sponsored peace talks they are saying that has been laws involvement in
8:20 am
the bloody civil war really complicates things a little the group itself is highly divided there's questions as to whether they have the syrian opposition have credibility with the syrians on the ground meanwhile president bashar al assad in an interview this week said only a referendum would decide whether he should leave power further complicating things is the decision by the european union which agreed not to renew a weapons embargo in syria potentially paving the way the way for weapons deliveries with. such a massive announcement such a big development in the past several days regarding syria so the e.u. weapons and bug has been lifted now the doors can fling wide open for all sorts of e.u. members to stop funneling their weapons or straight to the opposition the rebel fighters what it a decision embraced by all e.u. member states or just a few absolutely i mean the u.k. and france really led this push to dismantle the cargo which prevailed despite opposition from other european union member states those two countries are saying
8:21 am
that this would somehow help to ratchet up pressure against president bashar al assad the other states not so not so clear. on that although we should note that the british foreign secretary has said that there is no immediate plans to ship weapons into syria but still certainly a cause for concern in a conflict that has claimed more than eighty thousand lives to date some of western powers lucy accusing russia at this point of hampering peace efforts on the whole argument about russia's supplying assad with weapons how does moscow justify this it's a complex issue russia's plan to ship as three hundred anti-aircraft systems to syria caused a stir this week after president bashar al assad in an interview said that russia will be honoring its defense contracts further complicating things that the israeli elements the israelis have said that they are strongly opposed to this that they are prepared to use force if those weapons are delivered but we have to keep in mind these are contracts were signed roughly a year before the syrian civil war broke out in twenty eleven russians are not prepared to console the contracts although the deputy foreign minister has said
8:22 am
that this is seen as a stabilizing factor that will determine quote what he called some hotheads from considering to send in foreign forces to intervene in the syrian conflict i do these are russian made at three hundred i myself i reserve supposed to be for defensive which is not offensive but what about the issue of the use of chemical weapons it came up again this week can you tell us more about it's a bit murky but according to local turkish media reports the turkish government has rounded up about twelve people with suspected ties to the island those are fronts this is one of the rebel groups that's affiliated with al qaida that's been fighting bashar al assad on the ground and accused according to one it media reports they've discovered what they said two kilograms of sarin gas a powerful new york talks and now these are not confirmed reports but they do come amid growing concern of the use of chemical weapons by both sides and the united nations human rights investigators have in fact and obtained testimony from on the ground witnesses who allege that the rebels had used sarin gas and again unsubstantiated testimony but we should it did prompt a response from
8:23 am
a russian foreign minister sergei lavrov. we've warned repeatedly of provocation. as connected with chemical weapons we've also insisted on investigations into any case related to their possible use including the incident reportedly took place near aleppo we're very disappointed that because of political games the u.n. has failed to act on this we expect our turkish colleagues to quickly provide a full report on this latest case this issue ation is too serious for those who constantly talk about the chemical weapons problem to keep playing games around it each and every incident needs to be investigated so there you have it the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov calling for an investigation into what obviously is a murky but serious issue of concern. and historian and middle east expert tariq ali says some groups of this who are in opposition are trying everything to provoke a military intervention i think one of the. off some of the
8:24 am
fight has come battering the regime is to try and create maximum havoc and produce a situation where everyone says we have to have an intervention i mean i recall very well during the first vote in iraq there will sorts of propaganda week was june the stage is shown to be completely false such as that the iraqi soldiers you know cut off supplies to babies in hospitals and so many babies died or no on a larger scale the. saddam hussein and iraq had weapons of mass destruction so i expect anything from people closely allied to the west if the a mr. mr green intervention. the health of the gone time of a hunger strike is continue to worsen more inmates are being force fed her choose

8:32 am
me what's going on there because there is the district shoes for all the detainees not to talk about the conditions inside the camp but i can tell by the way he looks was so skinny this is the first time for him to put some glasses on his eyes. looks he looks horrible. he could not concentrate while he's talking to me he has. affected his. thinking we are very concerned very concerned about is life this we saw britain embroiled in a run how about its own gun tunnel clone it was revealed that up to ninety afghan nationals are being detained in secret and without charge at the u.k.'s can bask in base as aussie staff are found out some have been held for more than a year. u.k.
8:33 am
law is described this is a secret facility that was completely off the radar leading some to describe this as the u.k.'s kuantan emerge in afghanistan but it was a fun and speedy response that we saw from the other eighty and from defense secretary philip haven't got the details emerge of the detention facility income and of the legal action launched by u.k. lewis on behalf of some of the detainees there were some pretty damning revelations from these lawyers that these detainees had been held for fourteen months now the ministry of defense and the defense secretary admitted that between eighty and ninety detainees being held they were very quick thing to try to move away and quash these comparisons with one kind of might say two main difference is number one that the afghan detainees they said were being held. in safety now and they them by last year we saw the defense secretary hold the trial of afghan detainees
8:34 am
captured by british forces to the afghan security forces of the concerns that they might be subjected to torture would be another second reason that they gave was that this wasn't a secret this is the first time that many in the british public will have heard about this detention facility and the u.k. ambassador spoke out after these revelations saying that this was a principle of national serenity and that the detainees should be handed over to the afghan security forces as soon as possible the question of how to handle detainees has been the most enduring controversy since the u.s. led military campaigns in afghanistan and iraq and certainly until these transfers have made this controversy and these compare parazynski. they don't look like they're going to go away. london. egypt's legislative body has ruled it
8:35 am
nico by the country's supreme court while on the streets of britain the executions become a boringly common fight the lack of police of assigned leading to a spread of vigilante justice that's coming up after the break. distraction is one thing the media does very well we all tend to focus on one spicy issue of the moment and ignore the rest are definitely worth the media attention but let's not ignore the fact that the food people eat around the world is an attack from multiple fronts antibiotics are often overused in cattle which can and eventually. by arctic resistant bacteria evolving animals are also injected with various hormones which can make their way into our stomachs and speaking of
8:36 am
mysterious things getting into our body pretty much any crops and you we are doused with all sorts of pesticides and sit on top of powerful fertilizers which can affect bodies of water far beyond the fence of the farm obviously technology has been and should be used in farming so we all don't starve i get why pesticides exist and why they start giving diseased animals antibiotics but there comes a point where outputting a lot of poisonous food will kill you just as dead as slowly starving will there is a healthy middle ground out there somewhere but if we only worry about just the g m o's and only won that battle then we'll still be eating food loaded with bad stuff just other bad stuff but that's just my opinion.
